Chicago, IL—March 15, 2017—We are so excited to announce that Coyote has been named a finalist in PR News‘ 2017 Social Media Awards for the YouTube, Best Individual Video category.
The nominated video, “Who is Coyote”, lives on our YouTube channel and was part of our 2016 YouTube video advertisements. One of the main objectives of “Who is Coyote” was to share an easy way to explain a complex industry. Trying to explain logistics, supply chain management, and CTM software in less than two minutes isn’t an easy feat. However, with a simplified explanation, engaging motion graphics, and customer testimonials, we found success with “Who is Coyote” and it’s an incredible honor to be featured as a finalist.
The winners and honorable mentions of this annual program will be celebrated at PR News’ Social Media Awards Luncheon on May 2, 2017 from 12 to 2:30 p.m. at the Yale Club in New York City. This celebratory awards ceremony will honor the most outstanding social media campaigns across various platforms, and the creative individuals driving these stellar efforts.
